I personally think it would be cool to show an evolution of "commodity" 
PC history.  Easily, it can be done with an example of a clone 
motherboard from each generation from XT to current, with some 
description of the different expansion bus styles 8bit/16bit ISA (EISA), 
VLB, MCA, PCI, etc, the approach to CPU/RAM, PS from AT-ATX etc.  Maybe 
with an example of card and ram types, hard drives etc.

This would be not only historically relevant but also anyone who is into 
computers now at any age can relate to it, and see the evolution.  Could 
be a great side exhibit or wall hanging.

While some may say there's no personality to PC stuff, there's still 
computing history to be shown.
